What you'll do

Daily cruise in Venice has never been so fun!

We will start to sail in Venice, explore the lagoon, eat some nice Italian food and wine, sunbath, swim, relax. We will go to sail in the Adriatic sea, waiting for the afternoon breeze and enjoy the fun of a sporty boat. At the end we will return to the marina for an aperitivo in the amazing venetian sunset.

If you are a first timer and if you're interested in this opportunity we will also teach you the basics of sailing, doing daily courses where you will learn all the most important principles, either theorical and practical, and you'll feel like a real Skipper for a day.

Skippers, food & wine (lunch & aperitivo), mooring fees and fuel are all included in the price.

See you soon on board!

This experience went above and beyond what my friend and I hoped for. Such a steal to be able to sail all day plus lunch, bountiful drinks, sailing lessons, and a tour guide. Marco and Luigi began by taking us around the lagoon, telling us many interesting historical facts and current information. We then got a sailing lesson. After a nice dip in the sea, we were served a delicious lunch accompanying numerous drinks. Then we sailed and got to enjoy the sea. On our way back, we were served bellinis and introduced to the delicious Burano cookie. While all of this was fun, I think our favorite part was being able to have a genuine conversation with two local Venetians. They gave us a lot of good tips on what to do in Venice and what to avoid. We would definitely do this experience again!

My boyfriend and I booked the sailing trip as a last minute addition to our trip to Italy, and it ended up being our favorite day! Marco was so knowledgeable in Venetian history, and told us stories and cool facts all day. After a couple hours of sailing, we put the anchor down, and Marco served us one of the best meals we had the whole trip! It consisted of a wine, and a delicious cold pasta, followed by traditional Venetian tapas. We were able to go swimming and lay out and relax for a little while, before we resumed sailing. On the way back, we were served Bellinis and more snacks! I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone coming to Venice. Thank you, Marco!!

This daylong excursion was one of the highlights of my trip to Venice. Marco and Luigi have a genuine love for sailing and their passion translated to an amazing journey that took us around the Venetian Lagoon and into the Adriatic Sea. They both offered interesting commentary and historic background on the places we passed and the sights we saw. Wine and prosecco was free flowing and lunch (pasta with shrimp) was very delicious! I enjoyed sunbathing on the sailboat and taking a dive into the refreshing waters of the Adriatic. Would highly recommend this excursion!
